  1. To whom it may concern
    Dear Sir or Ma’am
    I am keen on finding out whether the library building of Sir Thomas Phillips still exists as I have an interest in tracing the background of Nicolas Vallard the first owner of the Vallard atlas in 1547.
    Apparently this atlas was held by him in this library although I gather that this collection was passed on to overseas buyers. However if the building still exists then I may visit it when I travel to the UK & France from Australia in September this year.

    I would appreciate it if you could advise me whether the original building known as the library of Sir Thomas Phillips still exists and whether there are tours going to this building please? Thank you

    • Middle Hill, Broadway, still exists and is situated on the side of the Cotswold escarpment above Broadway. The house is in private ownership and is not open to the public. Thirlestaine House, Bath Road, Cheltenham, is now part of Cheltenham College and I suggest contacting the school to see whether it is possible to visit.
